Games to be held behind closed doors

All sporting events in the country will soon commence under Amber level, meaning that competitions will be held behind closed doors with no spectators.

This decision was made by the National Sports Commission and the Ministry of Youth and Sports following their meeting in Suva today.

Commission chairman Peter Mazey said it is difficult to control spectators while trying to maintain the safety measures and the next best option is to avoid crowds at game venues.

He said all competitions will have to played in gated and fenced facilities or in any indoor venue only.

Mazey also confirmed that teams from maritime islands will not be participating in any sporting competition held outside of their zone and all sporting federations have received a letter outlining this along with the new return-to-play protocols.

He added that this is only a temporary measure.
